On to the ear­ring

Next, for the ear­ring, I se­lect the heart shape from the Pat­tern tool and cre­ate it. Then I use the Free Trans­form and Mesh Trans­for­ma­tion tools to ad­just the shape of the heart so that it matches the an­gle of the ear. The Soft Air­brush helps to cre­ate vol­ume, light­ness and shad­ows, which gives the ear­ring a plas­tic ap­pear­ance.

Fi­nal ad­just­ments

I spend time in Pho­to­shop to check the de­tails on all el­e­ments of my im­age, such as the shad­ows, lights and colour tem­per­a­ture. If nec­es­sary I en­hance the ren­der­ing or cor­rect them, en­sur­ing that the over­all im­age has a con­sis­tency about it. Once I’m happy that the light­ing is cor­rect, I put down my sty­lus. My pin-up is fin­ished!
